Praise For…

"Bryan’s seminal collections of slave songs and 'sorrow songs' (originally published by Atheneum in 1974 and 1982, respectively) have been reissued, updated, and beautifully redesigned with a new introduction by Bryan and a foreword by Dr. Henrietta Mays Smith." —Elissa Gershowitz, the Horn Book
